... you can learn from:
Red River (1948)
Cherry: There are only two things more beautiful
than a good gun: a Swiss watch or a woman
from anywhere. Ever had a good... Swiss watch?
You give me an opportunity to reference the gayest scene of all time -- that'd be John Ireland (more of him here) and Montgomery Clift comparing their pistols in Red River, obviously -- and I'm gonna reference that shit. (See also here.) Today's excuse is the 123rd anniversary of the birth of the film director Howard Hawks, who like a true gentleman gave us this gem.
I had a lot of Hawks Films I could've chose to highlight today, but thanks to this scene Red River's always the first one I think of. And right after that comes Ball of Fire and Bringing Up Baby and His Girl Friday and on and on...
So what's your favorite Howard Hawks film?
